anticipated, his critics started slamming proposals. the republican senator marco rubio saying nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. he is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of addressing the real underlying causes of such violence. add this tote pot. the congressman from kansas said taking away the rights and abilities of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves is another display of the administration's consolidation of power. joining me now from connecticut is john larson. thank you so much for joining me, sir. let me get your initial reaction to what you heard from the president. is it what you were hoping for? >> absolutely. i was fortunate to fly up from the president from d.c. to newtown when he gave his address. i can you to his marrow he was impacted by this and said it was the worst day of his presidency and he was resolved to do something about it and he has. i think the nation is behind this president and it is different now. i think the road ahead may be difficult, legislators shouldn't be afraid to stand in th

. >> i think they can go a long time. >> great. >> marco rubio, who is emerging as sort of a -- i guess what republicans would like to see is a moderate standard bearer for the party, the face of the future just came out with a statement and says the president is abusing his power in reaction to the comments he made. >> abusing his power how? >> this is also an old gop playbook, by the way, abuse of power and impeachment, right? >> i want to know how much this argument and the lines are established within the republican party and democratic party, how much that informs the republicans going forward. if they can't get anything done in the wake of newtown, how optimistic are we they are going to get anything done on immigration, let alone, you know, energy reform? >> i think they know there is a -- an image problem and an identity crisis happening. but that's absolutely right. it's not just about this, it's everything after this. this debate is going to be long and drawn out. this is just the start. we're going to move on very soon to talk about the debt ceiling, and it's going to be -- w

. >> and, in fact, marco rubio, chuck, has put out a statement saying that nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not go

right? marco rubio will be on this program tomorrow. a rising star. but doesn't have nearly the status of president obama or the bully pulpit and the press certainly not going to give rubio a break. everything is going the pet's way. i think that's how he feels. that he has got the momentum and he is going to squash the republicans now once and for all during his term. look i think you are right in identifying the two factors. there is one fundamental difference between those two factors, the media, the press, the intellectuals, academia, hollywood, they are always left. they always were. they always will be. that's the sunrising in the east. you have got to live with it despite that we erected a reagan and bush and then a second bush. but the other factor is not constant that's where i think you have got it wrong. you were arguing earlier in the show there was some kind of structural change in the country liberals have a that is simply a function of the fact that the democrats have just won the presidential election. when i look where the democrats were in 2000. when they lost, they h

voices on the right. senator marco rubio saying the president is abusing his power. the governor of mississippi claiming the president is anti-constitutional and vowing to pass a state law overriding the white house. rush limbaugh, accusing the president of using kids as human shields. but the lowest of the low was that video put out by the nra. dragging the president's children into the debate. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? and why is he skeptble about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are prikted by armed guards at their school? >> the nra really can't understand why the president's children received protection? the white house called that video repugnant and cowardly. the nra just doesn't understand how the tragedy at sandy hook changed america. today, on capital hill, the school superintendent moved people to tears as she talked about the terrible moments after the shooting. >> the true horror came as tharnts came running to their children. we began to realize we didn't have enough children. there were parents without children. >> pa

. the white house said senator marco rubio's latest comments on immigration reform bode well for the possibility of cooperation. republicans have been no friend to wage earners, particularly over the past four years. to them immigration reform has the potential to put more votes in the democratic column. but if republicans ignore the issue, they risk losing even more hispanic voters and minority voters across the board. this might finally be the time for something that is long overdue. and it could be great for the american economy. the tech industry wants to reform because it would stop the brain drain of highly skilled workers putting undocumented laborers on the books is a good thing because it pumps dollars into the economy. i am joined tonight by hilda solis, secretary of labor who is leaving that position, but in my opinion has done a fabulous job. >> thank you. >> you've been a tremendous advocate across the board for not just labor, but for the environment, green jobs, women's rights. >> thank you. >> the lot. hilda, what about immigration reform and what it would mea

tim scott on the panel or something. >> sure. if he wants to be on the panel. or how about marco rubio? or how about senator cruz from texas? the idea that you're going to have three white men come up with strategies to appeal to people of color and women to help save the republican party, i repeat what i said before, it's bananas. >> okay. that's the second bananas. krystal, there are some other details that are leaking out about their itinerary and perhaps i should say oozing out. for instance, patrick doyle, the ceo of dominos pizza is giving a presentation on quote, turning it around. that sounds apt for this audience. >> that's a smart booking. that makes sense. >> you think he makes sense? >> having panels about how to talk to minorities and women led by white men is not the best turnaround. one thing that has been amazing coming out of the republican party is rather than look at the things they've been saying and promoting, they're still going down the path of how can we rig the electoral process to our benefit with reince priebus and others. >> that's what they're going to be t

based on what senator marco rubio of florida, republican, has put out there. he's put some ideas out there. do you -- do you endorse liz ideas? guest: i have not spoken to senator rubio yet, but we welcome those ideas. there are others in the house that are working on specific proposals and wider ranging proposals, and we want to take a look at this. you know, we are a nation of immigrants. there is not a person to be found who's a u.s. citizen who can't go back a few generations or several generations and find someone in their family who came to the united states to better their lives. my grandfather came from germany. my wife's parents came from ireland. this is a very, very common thing. we are also a nation of laws. so finding a way to address this issue and fix a very broken immigration system will entail looking at a lot of different pieces of this, including enforcement and what you do with the millions of people who are not lawfully in the united states today. so we're willing to look at all those things and see what kind of common ground we can find. we're prepared to see ho

, senator marco rubio. steve will have the mask off. good morning. president obama will unveil his gun control agenda later today. it is sure to have pro-gun advocates seeing red when they get the news. we're hearing the president will call for some of the most sweeping changes to gun laws we've seen in decades including executive orders that go around congress. some are comparing to what was passed in the late 1960s. big morning of news. bill hemmer. good to have you here on "america's newsroom". martha: good morning. i'm martha maccallum. hey, bill. the president is set to make the announcement at white house surrounded by law enforcement officials and children who wrote him letters about gun violence. bill: interesting staging. the national rifle association, the nra, already fighting back with a tough ad that is on the airwaves now. watch this. >> mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes but he is just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids, and gun free zones for ours. bill: that is part of it. wendell gole

of respect for marco rubio. we disagree on some things, agree on others. i found him to be very open in his views. i'll seek that. i'll talk to those who are on border states, southern border states. i want to hear what they have to say. i actually joined with president george w. bush, he wanted a comprehensive immigration reform, i told him i strongly support him on that. we don't face this issue in vermont. we don't have canadians wanting to come across the border for a better life or better health care system or whatever in the united states. they are pretty comfortable where they are. but that's not the case everywhere. i'm also very worried -- some of the things i hear and some of the blogs xenophobic attitude, kick those foreigners out, probably by somebody who is one or two generations away from being immigrants themselves. that's not what america is about. that's not what attracted my grandparents and great grandparents to this country. so i am perfectly willing whether it's the gang of six, 12, or something, but in the united states senate we need a gang of 51 to get it through and
